What Heritage Means To Me
Remembering who you are, and improving on self and community 101… I guess as a self proclaimed novice under the teachings of Garveyism I’ll start with the sound importance of learning and understanding who you are and to the best of your abilities every salt grain iota that would make up the very culture and people you are of. As said by The Honorable Marcus Garvey “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots”. Meaning the dialect, the diet, the literature, the spiritual system, the music, and even more substantial- the history. All essential in what it takes to have an upper hand on life with what I see as key guides to fundamentals like, self esteem, pride, a place of belonging, growth in community, wealth, politics and especially an overall sturdy enough foundation in being born into an atmosphere providing even teaspoons of these ingredients which alone would dare your genetic structure to have your back enough to provide you with the tools for mental health and both personal and communal success. – Anne Idea
